Evil Australians - New Dreamcast (and 3DO) game for Ludum Dare !

Post#1 » Thu Feb 02, 2017 8:07 pm

Here's my first original release in about 4 years : Evil Australians !

Image

Evil Australians is a small game i made for the 3DO, Sega Dreamcast and PCs.
It's a platforming arena game made from scratch with the help of my own library, Gameblabla's Wrapper.
The game has several missions and in each mission, you are stuck in an arena where
you must defeat all the remaining enemies.
To defeat the enemies, you have a rapid-fire gun that can shoot several bullets at the same time.
There are 4 missions in total.

Story
John, living in Australia, is an avid video game collector.
However, he learns from the news that the Australian government is soon going to ban video games.
John became furious :
he grabs his weapons and swears vengeance on the government.

However 7 years ago,
the government collected his own DNA as part of a secret project.
This secret project allowed the government to steal DNAs from all the aussies.
The Government learned of John's plan and they used his DNA to build an entire clone army of himself.

John is now facing an entire army of himself,
will he make it alive and finally kill the law ?

Cool little game - I made an SD Iso image to try it. There were some graphics problems though, such as a persistent blue vertical line on the right side of the screen and some flickering on the platforms. Not sure if that's due to it being an SD Iso image or a bug?

Fun game, but maybe some more missions in a future update? :)

Thanks for testing dave, it was actually a bug with the Dreamcast version :/
I fixed it though and uploaded the new version.

New levels will be planned after the Ludum Dare compo is finished !
Glad you enjoyed the game !: (despite the graphical glitches...)

Go ahead, you're free to redistribute it. I'll get mad if no one would at least give it a try.

Just saying that i have updated the Dreamcast port after i discovered that sound effects were not playing properly. (if at all)
I took the time to fix some bugs, add music and yada.
Still no new levels though.

I'm not sure what i should work on next for the Dreamcast (or really anything).

A nice little game with lots of potential. You should continue working on this until you have a finished game.
